Teach a small classroom of 12-14  Syrian refugee children currently living in Lebanon.... Generally, ALC follows a project-based learning method that uses hands-on creative ways to integrate English, math, science, social studies and other subjects into explorative learning. Arabic will be taught separately. Volunteers will teach a classroom of children who may be the age of the grade listed, but likely whose English skills are not at the grade level listed. Volunteer Teaches will be responsible to utilize the resources provided to create and implement a curriculum and activities that will encourage curiosity and facilitate active hands-on learning that pushes kids to catch up to their grade level in English. Volunteer Teachers will be provided with a list of key competencies that children of this age/grade level should know and then they will have the flexibility and liberty to create projects that will help them to teach the competencies they choose. Training and support will be provided to each volunteer to ensure they are able to create and implement successful projects. Volunteers can expect to teach four days a week between 9am - 3pm.  Afternoon hours on work days are spent on home visits and other interactions with families. While working with us, volunteers have the opportunity to develop Arabic conversational skills through daily interactions with the community and children.
